New magazine delivers the best in crochet and knitting inspiration

MANCHESTER, UK (27th JUNE 2018):  The past few years have seen a boom in the interest in crochet, with beautiful and colourful designs popping up everywhere from home décor to catwalk fashion. Crochet is fast becoming as popular as knitting, which remains one of the UK’s favourite creative pastimes.

To meet the demand of new and would-be crocheters and knitters looking for accessible inspiration, Practical Publishing – the home of Simply Cards & Papercraft, Knit Now and ACE award-winning Specialist Interest Magazine of the Year, Crochet Now – is launching a brand-new magazine this July called Your Crochet & Knitting.

Editor Angela Hatton explains: “Your Crochet & Knitting is all about providing readers with simple and easy projects and instructions, so anyone can start creating something special, even if they’ve never crocheted or knitted before.”

Issue 1 of Your Crochet & Knitting goes on sale on 5th July, priced at £8.99, and comes with a bumper six-ball co-ordinating yarn kit, knitting needles and crochet hook. Within the magazine are over 35 contemporary and inspiring patterns and dozens of these can be made right away with the yarn kit, including five official Mr. Men and Little Miss characters. The magazine is available through WHSmith, Tesco, Morrisons, Asda, Sainsbury’s and all good newsagents throughout the UK.
